Went to the rooftop bar lovely place with amazing city views! Was busy and one negative is the lack of shaded areas in the mid day sun. Also the toilets are very poor!

You pay 4 euros to get to the rooftop where there is a bar! It’s a bit expensive but it’s a nice experience! There’s usually a looong que to wait though..

You have to pay €4 to go up to the rooftop terrace, and the cocktail I had cost €10, so maybe not a place to go if you're on a tight budget, but for me it was so worth it! I went at night and...More

No one can argue that the views are amazing but it was a bit crowded and drinks were over priced. You pay 4e for entrance

It cannot be argued that the views are insane. With sky scraping buildings against the surrounding mountains, it was breathtaking. The drinks were fairly priced for the area and they take pride in a food gin and tonic. The bar looks very tired however and...More

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
